Identification & Functionality

Composition

ACUSOL™ 445N Detergent Polymer is a homopolymer of acrylic acid with selected molecular weight around 4500 in order to optimize the following properties:

  • Anti-precipitation: ACUSOL™ 445N Detergent Polymer can increase solubility of precipitating salts by threshold effect. This allows to reduce in the wash bath precipitation of inorganic salts (carbonates, phosphates, sulphates of Ca and Mg).
  • Crystal distortion: this polymer gets entrapped into crystal lattices, preventing their growth and facilitating their breakage. This minimizes adherence of salts on surfaces and facilitates their elimination by rinsing.
  • Dispersing properties: this polymer is a good dispersant for soils and will help to prevent their redeposition on surfaces.
  • Processing aids: the polymeric and chemical nature of ACUSOL™ 445N Detergent Polymer will bring binding properties which can be useful in several detergent manufacturing processes especially tableting.

ACUSOL(TM) 445N Features & Benefits

Applications & Uses

Dose Rate

ACUSOL™ 445N Detergent Polymer is designed to be used in phosphate based or phosphate free detergents, the latter based on carbonate, silicate, citrate and NTA.

ACUSOL™ 445N Detergent Polymer is a suitable candidate for alkaline and chlorinated cleaners. In addition, ACUSOL™ 445N Detergent Polymer can be incorporated in carbonate rich fabric wash powders, and at low level in liquid laundry formulations.

Technical Details & Test Data

Performance Properties

Typical values, not to be construed as specifications. Users should confirm results by their
own tests.

Figure 1. Cleaning vs. Detergent Base (Clay Soil Removal on Cotton)

The use of a dispersant polymer will enhance the cleaning properties (clay soil removal) of laundry detergents based on both zeolite/soda ash and phosphate.

Conditions

  • Zeolite/Soda-Ash-Based: 150 ppm hardness; 0.15% detergent; 38°C; 10 minute wash.
  • Phosphate-Based: 150 ppm hardness; 0.1% detergent; 49°C; 10 minute wash.

Typical values, not to be construed as specifications. Users should confirm results by their own tests.

Figure 2. Effect of Polymer on Cleaning (Clay Soil Removal on PE/Cotton)

The cleaning performance of any laundry detergent is inversely related to water hardness. The use of a dispersant polymer such as ACUSOL™ 445N Detergent Polymer, however, can help to offset the effect of the hardness.

Conditions

  • Zeolite/Soda-Ash-Based: 150 ppm hardness; 0.15% detergent; 38°C; 10 minute wash.
  • Phosphate-Based: 150 ppm hardness; 0.1% detergent; 49°C; 10 minute wash.

Typical values, not to be construed as specifications. Users should confirm results by their own tests.

Figure 3. Effect of ACUSOL™ 445N Detergent Polymer on the Deposition of CaCO3

ACUSOL™ dispersant polymers have a remarkable ability to reduce calcium carbonate
deposition (encrustation) on laundry during the wash cycle. Even with very hard water
(300 ppm calcium), adding 1.0 percent of ACUSOL™ 445N Detergent Polymer to a sodaash-based detergent will virtually eliminate encrustation.

Conditions

Soda-Ash-Based: 0.1% detergent; 40°C; 10 minute wash/5 minute rinse; 5 cycles.
